IBM FlexSystem介紹Alan LinI/T SpecialistSystem x, Systems and Technology GroupIBM Corporation


We started with a clean sheet of paper

Built-in Expertise

  • Expert integrated systems

Integration by Design

Simplified Experience

  • Deeply integrate and tune hardware and software – in a secure, built for cloud, ready-to-go, workload optimized system

  • Make every part of the IT lifecycle easier - with integrated management and a broad open ecosystem of optimized solutions

  • Capture and automate what experts do – from infrastructure patterns to application patterns

We started with a clean sheet of paper…

  • Hardware management “built-in” – nothing to install

  • Make advanced virtualization more consumable (lower the skills required to operate a highly virtualized system)

  • Deliver platform pre-configured and optimized for virtualization (storage virtualization and network virtualization built-in)

  • New, dramatically simpler application deployment models

  • But yet, maintain full compatibility with current workloads


We took a different approach

We took a different approach…

New class of Integrated System:

  • No-compromise hardware, with latest Power, x86, advanced storage and networking and choice of I/O.

  • Full-function management node, which integrates IBM management technology for servers, storage, network and virtualization management

  • Factory installed, fully packaged solutions drive simple setup (pull it out of the box, plug it in and boot it up)

  • Single product streamlines ordering, tracking, receiving, installing and running

To create an integrated system, we discovered that we first had to better integrate ourselves…

Flex System Manager – Network and Storage Virtualization

  • Network Control:

  • Networking attributes follow the Virtual Servers as they live migrate from node to node or chassis to chassis.

  • Create “Logical Networks” to define network VLANs, Access Control, Quality of Service, Bandwidth and Traffic Priority attributes.

  • Use FSM to associate Virtual Servers with Logical Networks. The Flex System will configure and maintain these network attributes for each virtual server.

  • Storage Control:

  • Embedded Tivoli Storage Productivity Center (TPC)

  • Dynamic zoning/masking as part of virtual server relocation

  • Dynamic storage provisioning as part of image deployment

Network control port level network topology

Network Control: Port Level Network Topology

Port-level shows port-to-port connections between servers and switches, user can:

Determine to what port on the switch a specific server is connected

Determine what ports, if any, on a particular switch are not in use

Visualize any devices or ports in a degraded state


Network control subnet network topology

Network Control: Subnet Network Topology

Subnet shows a system-level view of all systems in the same subnets as the selected systems, user can:

Creating storage volumes with fsm

Creating Storage Volumes with FSM

  • Adding storage volumes normally takes someone with deep expertise

    • Usually requires 3 different software tools and 70+ clicks

  • With FSM, takes 5 clicks and does not require deep expertise

  • Could predefine storage volumes but then storage is wasted until needed
